“Good eating experiance”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

Good food, excelent service spot on beer, choice of bitter ales +a guest ale.
The menue is very extensive and most tasts catered for. The staff were very welcoming and could not do enough for you and made our 5yr old grand son very welcom and important.
The food is cooked to a high standard and we were not rushed at all.
We would recomend anybody to eat at Kents. A altogether good place to eat.

“Great pub and great restaurant”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

This is a great location for a nice meal and the restaurant within the pub is very welcoming and is a quality venue, the food is of great quality and we have now eaten here about five times and not been disappointed, good selection for both Adults and Children and there is the added nice touch of having children sized cutlery which a lot of restaurants seem to forget.

“A lovely lunch”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

Visiting our nephew, it was his suggestion we stopped here for lunch. This public house has a lovely welcoming feel, the bar had its share of lunchtime regulars. Beyond the bar is the restaurant, comfortable table and chairs, with good quality linen and silverware. Our server was totally charming and helped with our choices. The menu serves a good variety of food from typical pub grub to more sophisticated tastes including the tempting smoked salmon on scrambled eggs. We had the chicken salad and the ham egg and chips. All the food arrived as we ordered, well presented piping hot and within good time. Excellent quality, taste, service and good value meant we had a lovely lunch and look forward to a return visit.

“New Year's Day family meal ”
Reviewed 7 January 2014 via mobile

We booked at the the Kent's as we were on holiday for the new year at a house not far to walk there were 12 adults and 3 children (2 in high chairs ) on entering we were shown straight to our table and told someone would come and take our drinks order and so they did they had even set the table with children's cutlery for the little ones which was a lovely thing to see the meals were all on time and lovely and very filling and were served with a smile from both waitresses we were also serve our drink so didn't have to get up and down from the table to go to the bar they are very child friendly too so needless to say we use the place a few time during the week and ate there on the last night thank you to the managers and staff for making us feel welcome will defiantly visit again if and when we visit Torquay again xx
